December is an expensive month. Once you’ve added up the cost of gifts for Mum, Dad, Auntie Nora and your weird nephew Billy, as well as “Christmas drinkies” with everyone you’ve ever met, there’s often not much left over. No wonder Britons whack £4.4 BILLION on credit cards in December.
But after the long – and frankly dreary – summer months, December is the first chance to get back on the mountain. Which leaves us all in a bit of a pickle.
Luckily, the Christmas elves at Crystal Ski Holidays are here to help. We’re taking £150 off all holidays to Europe if you go away between 20 and 31 December.
Imagine what you could do with an extra £150 in your pocket? If you’re sensible – like us – you’d put the cash towards some awesome Christmas presents for yourself. Go on, you deserve it.
Sports tracker – Fitbit Charge HR – £119
Lots of skiers are already fully paid up members of the sport tracking club. From using apps like Ski Tracks to Crystal Ski Explorer, loads of us are tracking our daily km’s, altitude and speed on the mountain. Take this to the next level with a sports tracker like the Fitbit Charge HR, which tracks steps, sporting activity, heart rate and sleep. Overload your mind with awesome data – and prove to your mates that you weren’t terrified on that last black run – your heart rate only increased to 150 bpm…that’s nothing, right?

Action Camera – GoPro HERO Session – £159
If you ski through an insane powder field and no-one sees it on Facebook, did it really happen? Record all your mountain memories with an action camera like the new GoPro HERO Session – which is pocket sized and records in 1080p HD. Fully waterproof and compatible with loads of mounts, it’s the perfect mini companion for your ski holiday. You can grab it at the moment for around £159, which is totally worth it when you see the jealous reactions of your friends to your YouTube montage “Tignes on tour ’17”.

Helmet – POC Receptor Bug Helmet – £145
Look, we’re not going to have the old helmet-or-no-helmet debate, but it’s pretty clear that helmets can look ace. This one from POC certainly does, and is up to date with all the latest tech to keep you safer and warmer on the slopes. This can even connect to POC’s neck pad that has integrated Beats headphones in. Safety and big tunes? Sign us up.

Goggles – Anon MIG Goggle – £125
The quickest way to improve your on-the-slopes style is with a fresh pair of new goggles. We love these ones from Anon, as they have a magnetic clip that attaches to an Anon bandana/facemask, for full face protection in the colder months – but without anything steaming up. Even though it’s Christmas, no-one wants to look like Rudolph at the end of the day, do they? These are also frameless, giving you a panoramic view of everything going on around you – meaning you can dodge those crazy kids from ski school.
